A Very Merry Christmas!!

We had a very nice Christmas this year. The kids were a blast to watch--especially Aleigha! She was such a hoot! We spent the first part of our morning opening up our Stockings and Santa gifts and then headed over to Grammie and Papa's for some very yummy brunch! Afterwards, we enjoyed opening the remainder of our family and friend gifts. Aleigha was in such a hurry to open presents. She'd get one opened and then would want another one right now! Everything seemed to be happening VERY fast. Finally, we said let's calm things down and enjoy our opening of gifts. Aleigha hated that idea, but we dealt with it! Jake had so much fun...he kept buzzing around like a bee...couldn't hold that kid still for nothin'! Thankfully, we were able to come home and have much needed naps and then back to Grammie and Papa's for some dinner and visiting.

We had a pretty great day. Even with the raunchy kids and runny noses!

We hope each of you had a wonderful day filled with the joy of this wonderful holiday! We love you and wish we could spend this day with you all!

Kreanna, Jon, Jacob, & Aleigha

P.S. I left my camera at Barb & Phil', I will post pics tomorrow!

Snow Fun & Christmas Concert (December 19th)

I know I promised updates, but I felt that I needed to post these items first...that way I just get it done! hehe

Yesterday, it was a bit warmer outside (17 degrees versus 9) and so I took the kids outside in the backyard and let them run around and play in the snow. They had a BLAST and spent a good hour throwing snow at each other me. Aleigha kept wiping snow off of things--like our turtle sand box, she had to wipe off all the snow from off the top of it. The dryer vent, that too. Her boots and mine. It was rather amusing watching her. Jake was just happy to be able to make his snow angels and throw snow at me (even though I didn't want him too). It was great being outside and "playing" with them for a bit. Snow is so much's too bad it has to be SOOOO freakin' cold!!!

Today, was Jake's preschool's Christmas Concert. Ok, actually, it was the whole schools, but, I only really cared about Jake's part. He was SOOO cute. When he came out he started looking for me...couldn't find me and then when he did he was like, "Mom! Hi mom! Look at me! I'm going to sing!" he was soo excited to show off for me. hehehe He was too cute!! Anyways, I have some videos to share.
